UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The October 1 military parade in Beijing unveiled a recent Chinese WZ-8 reconnaissance drone.
Experts on the back of the drone noted the projections assumed that it is intended for installation at the bottom of the Chinese-made H-6N grenade launcher that was developed from the Soviet-made “Tu-16” launcher.
The absence of air intakes in the drone has caught the attention of many. Some said he did not need it because it was a liquid-fueled rocket and not an aircraft, and that it was intended to fly at a very high altitude beyond the range of fire from most air defenses.

Experts do not rule out the use of drone to spy on groups of ships at sea and aircraft carriers in particular, and send information about the target to the anti-ship DF-21D missile platforms.
Drone can reconnaissance after carrying out his mission to hover towards the airport for landing, such as “shuttle” US.
